The Process of Creating an Artwork
Have you ever wondered how does an artwork get materialized from an idea to its final rendition?
Here's how it started
This painting entitled, 'Serenity' started with a simple line drawing. Watch this time lapse video of drawing process to see the beginning of how this painting was created.
Colours Came Next
"Colour is a power which directly influences the soul." Wassily Kandinsky
I wanted this painting to be a mix of figurative and abstract elements. Once the line drawing was done, I chose some calming colours - pale hues of blue, green and yellow. These were applied in layers. Gradually I added texture and added some abstract elements.
Buddha radiates spirituality, beauty and well being for all. Hence, I added some brightness to his face with touches of yellow and gold as the final step. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. What does this communicate to you?
